I had read the other books in this series and couldn't find Chindi in the shops for years. Fortunately, Amazon (and Kindle) were there. I loved this book. It is a great addition to the others and a typical Jack McDevitt story: a new breath in science fiction, a book that you'll want to keep reading until the end (and then re-read many times over the coming years). I have read most of his other books, and read them several times already since they were published. Each time, they can be enjoyed in a new way. I would definitely recommend this book (and others by the same author) to anyone starting with science fiction, or wanting to go back to the sense of wonder of the 1950s, with a definitely modern take.
